The Conservative government in the UK has yesterday cancelled the so-called “Dubs Amendment” where by they had agreed to take around 3,500 refugee children from camps in Europe. The picture above is of Lord Dubbs, former KinderTransport boy, refugee and Parliamentarian at an event I attended last year.
They have gone back on what they agreed last year and listening to the radio this morning, it seems that Amber Rudd the duplicitous Immigration Minister appeared to argue that black is white and the agreement isn’t an agreement.
I made a trip to the Jungle Refugee camp in Calais in order to see what it was like. It was totally disgusting, smelly, dirty and revolting. You can read my impression of the camp here. The camp was a total blot on humanity, a shaming, a retort to all our liberal values, the fact that the Tories have cancelled the agreement which pulls unaccompanied refugee children out of situations like this, shows their lack of humanity and their lack of basic decency.
Here is the video I made which gives only a short hint about what the camp was like and the conditions that refugee children had to live in and which the Dubs Amendment hoped to lift them out of.
If you still need convincing that refugee children who are without their parents and on their own in these camps deserve a better life in the UK, click on the picture below to see a wider set of photos which I took when I was there.
If you are still not convinced, you are dead inside.
